How to Answer Behavioral Interview Questions

This video discusses behavioral questions that ask you to describe situations that involve teamwork, leadership, conflict resolution, and your reaction to past failures.

The moderator recommends using the STAR technique to remember how to describe your response to a workplace challenge.

  1. Tell a story about a situation you encountered, such as a problem or challenge the company faced;
  2. Describe the task, or what you needed to do;
  3. Describe your action, or how you responded; and
  4. Describe the results, such as how your action helped the company, led to increased sales, or put the organization in a better place. You should also describe the lessons you learned.
